For two and a half thousand years, the animal body has been dissected to drive arguments in natural philosophy, to remind us of death, to educate and enthrall. From ancient Egyptian attempts to depict the skeletal structure of a horse through Damien Hirst's taxidermic shark, this visual history recounts the intertwined intellectual and artistic journeys of comparative anatomy from antiquity to the present day, focusing on five great phases of anatomical endeavor. Lyrically written and accompanied by dozens of captivating color illustrations from history's animal anatomists—including Leonardo da Vinci, Albrecht Dürer, and Edweard Muybridge—this book chronicles how we have slowly come to understand the animal kingdom and the natural world.
